I'm working on trying to import an image to use as a backdrop for rendering in Photoview 360. I can get the image to come in as a background but then I cannot get the floor reflection to turn off without the shadows turning off too. They seem to be connected somehow. I then tried to get the image as an environment but solidworks distorts it like you're looking through a fish eye lens with a single focal point.

Every time I fire this thing up I am left shocked at how completely unsatisfactory any of the default scenes and settings are to get any sort of useful output at all. Initially it seems the dang thing is flying in the air at a funny angle, sitting half way up the wall in the corner of a room where the lights are pointing anywhere but at it.... i just don't understand why there isnt anything like a default scene where you can see detail on anything....always the shadows are crazy directions and

Whenever I render something that has inner shadow - see attached picture for example, I get this grainy look and the shadow becomes really bad. I improved the render quality from "best" to "maximum" and also improved image quality on settings to high. but still struggling with this issue.

I recently added a simple decal to the top of a switch which is now part my companies part library. To save having an extra file/image in with the components & running the risk of it getting lost or deleted, I made the decal self-contained within the part (by ticking the option in the Document Properties > Model Display) The only issue I have now is that the decal isn’t appearing when I render the part in Photoview 360.

I am new to rendering, and am playing around with it. I edited a light on an assembly to highlight one of the faces. It shows in the Solidworks window but it doesn't show in the render. The lights are "on" in both Solidworks and Photoworks 360.

I am trying to render a short 18 second animation in Photoview 360 in an assembly and everything in the model turns out as a white shiny finish. I can render a single image and it is fine, with correct plastics, rubbers and metals applied, but in the video every part of the model turns all white. Photoview 360 is installed and switched on.

Hello All,.. I ran into a weird screen render using a camera... it seems to be only in 2017/2018 and only when a camera is used... pulses/zooms in-out/grainy.. see attached file/video.. (also, so far,.. it is ONLY this sldprt file... some sort of file corruption? Can anyone using 2017/2018 test and confirm seeing this..?

When using solid works i have a flat sheet of 3mm polished aluminium. The sides will reflect and appear shiney, but the top does not? Try many different environments and materials, also different mappings etc.

I have created some basic "fly-thru" photo-realistically rendered animations, which I kicked of on Friday evening to run over the weekend... So my management wants to know, If you were going to build/buy a dedicated system for generating photo-realistically rendered animations, what would you spec ?

(which I have to render twice to show the "exterior", and "what's inside"), then edit together in post... Using my older I-7 based computer, with an NVidia Quadro 4000 graphics card, and PhotoView 360, my limited experience leads me to estimate that it will take somewhere between 5 to 8 days to process... during which time it is not advisable to use the computer for anything else...

is there a way to turn off the "preview window"? i use "real graphics view" and it seems a waste of system resources that the "preview window" is always updating; or that when you hit the "render" button, the system fires up the preview window first, then opens the render window.

Been fishing around for a while now but havn't seen a fix for this. I'm trying to render in different camera angles, but the final rendering is staying in one format and location, I've tried locking/unlocking camera and view, creating new cameras deleting all of them, adjusting setting manually. Still isn't working for me.

I found this discussion (Transparent background?) where it looks like in the standalone pv360 it was possible to omit the floor and environment while keeping the shadows in the final render. Is this possible in the integrated version of pv360 or has this functionality been removed? One word:Paul Salvador(I know it looks like two, but he's the 1.)

I'm trying to add something resembling ambient lighting to a photoview 360 render. I want to render an interior space of my model with a flat, shadowless lighting applied to all surfaces, as if the air itself is emitting light, in addition to the other lights in the model. I've tried using the Primary Photoview 360 lighting for this, but I can't find any way to disable shadows for it, so that's out.

Hey guys, I'm having some trouble resizing a material texture. I'm using the "matte rubber" material and the texture that comes with it is scaled wrong for my part. I'm trying to make it smaller.
